How do I Get the Mobile App that Puts Your Library at My Fingertips?
Our Library has recently launched a mobile app that puts the library resources just one click away with much faster access than going through a browser. The Library's mobile app was developed by Boopsie Inc. From any mobile phone connected to the internet you can instantly tap into library resources, anytime, anywhere.

You can use it to check your account , find out if your holds are ready for you to pick up, or to reserve and renew books, CDs and DVDs. You can also use it to search the Library's Catalog and browse for books, music, and movies. Lastly you can use it to stay connected using the links to the Library's blogs and Facebook page.
Do you have a special mobile catalog for downloadable materials?
Yes. Our Library understands that some users enjoy the use of downloadables and prefer to have a special catalog to search all the downloadable materials. Using your browser, you will enter the address of http://overdrive.naperville-lib.org in the address bar to access the Overdrive mobile catalog. You can also use it to access your Digital account, search the catalog and browse for books, music, and movies while on the go!

How can I sign up for text notices?
In order to receive text messages, you will use the My Account preference. You must select the email notification preference and provide an email address in addition to the cell text email address.
While there is no charge from the Library for this service, you may see a charge for incoming text messages at the standard rate applied by your cell phone carrier, depending on your plan or package.
